The book measures ~ 12" x 14" and feels like it weighs about ten pounds!
The reproductions are large and of good quality, the large details (excerpts) allow the reader to get a sense of how the paintings read in close proximity.
Christopher Finch has done a wonderful job of revealing both Chuck Close the man and the artist.
